    it happened on his watch, he gave the order to take him out, he gets to share in the credit....if it had failed, and if hard core conservatives were honest, they would admit that they would have crucified him, compared the attempt to the failed rescue attempt by the Carter administration to rescue the hostages....the right would have put all the blame on his shoulders if this would have failed....it just kills the right that Obama gets to claim some credit.

    Generally, presidents give credit for successful operations to the people on the ground and avoid taking direct credit for their actions.

    Also, giving an order really does mean just about nothing.

    The video cut out a lot of the praise and credit he gave to not only the SEALs, but also President Bush.

    I think a much, much better question (and far more appropriate) would be:

    Would Republicans ever give credit to President Obama, for having done anything right, at any time, and under any circumstances?

    if he doesnt give the order, the operation doesnt happen...so the order does mean something...Obama put his Presidency at stake, he took a real risk giving the go ahead, knowing full well that if it failed, the right would use it as a hammer on him.
